First on CNN: Liz Cheney to abandon Senate bid

New York (CNN) -- Liz Cheney, whose upstart bid to unseat Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi sparked a round of warfare in the Republican Party and even within her own family, is dropping out of the Senate primary, sources told CNN late Sunday.

There was little public polling of the race, but two partisan polls released last year showed Enzi with a wide lead, an assessment mostly shared by GOP insiders watching the race.

Beyond the campaign missteps, Cheney's election effort, vigorously supported by her father and his allies, often felt out-of-tune with the small-government conservative sentiment that has fueled other Republican primary challengers.
Cheney, like her father, is an unapologetic neoconservative who favors muscular use of American military power overseas, a policy that does not sit well with many grassroots conservatives, particularly in the libertarian-leaning West.

1. A long overdue headline -- but no surprise in coming as she is the worst candidate ever


Her personality is one that belongs in the stockroom, not the press room. Now she can go and weed her own garden and stop worrying about other peoples' lives.

2. Long overdue indeed.

 

I knew the people of Wyoming, as red as that state is, would never go for a carpetbagging Washington insider. I doubt at this point if her father would have stood a chance, favorite son or not he left Wyoming a long time ago.

3. Shame she quit so early

Would have loved for her to waste a couple million of her donors' money first

4. In my view the best possible outcome

 

would have been a 50-pt drubbing in the primary. That would have ended any possible future in electoral politics don't you think? Not to mention being delicious to watch.
